December 30, 2016 The New Marlboro Preserve is a reality!  Yesterday, the Land Trust acquired this valuable mix of field, forest and watershed --- 114 acres for $260,000. Our community's big heart was on display -- more than 200 people contributed. Every donation, large or small, helped make the Preserve possible. Thank you.
